ultimately, our undying allegiance is to the city and county in terms of local government and the resources that are here. to that effect, let me thank the budget chair here on the board of supervisors. john avalos, who was a nay vote initially because it appeared that it was going to cost the city too much and also a very heartfelt thanks to the team of harvey rose and associates. specifically fred russo. thank you for your work on this. thank you for actually looking at the numbers and getting us the information that we needed to make an informed decision. i think court staff was able to pick up on that and come forward with a proposal that not only works in terms of the city's treasury, but i think it also is
6:31 pm
going to work better for the port of san francisco and forwarding an effort that has been going on since i first arrived here to deliver a cruise ship terminal. it is more responsible in terms of the long-term use of our pork property. i think that if it's much better in the area that we have had supervisor campos do a lot of work and in the past three years in terms of making sure the process is fair -- i think that'd it's much better in the area that we have had supervisor campos do a lot of work in in the past three years in terms of making sure the process is fair. with that said, we have one more amendment to propose. that is i need to borrow the cop on january 5 -- barbie -- borrow

6:37 pm
approved drug storage program for the collection and disposal of unwanted drugs from residential sources. commissioner mirkarimi: i appreciate your indulgence over the last several weeks. i have reported back to you that instead of advancing the legislation at first for a vote, which we know we have the votes for at the time, we had decided to work alternatively with the mayor's office and the department of the environment to help us bring together representatives of the pharmaceutical industry. as i had reported to you, we have had some very constructive meetings, by a particular with one association known as pharma, which represents a sizable consortium of pharmaceutical manufacturers, many that are based throughout the united states national and multinational. very strong lobbying arm. we have managed to get to a
6:38 pm
place where one of the representatives has offered upwards of about 100 or $110,000, based on the proposal that we have asked for in order to implement what we think would be an effective pilot, they have fallen considerably short, and when we asked retail operators like safeway or walgreen's, who are the principal players with regard to the largest orbit of players that sell pharmaceuticals, we need them at the table, and they just have not been there, so i want to thank the mayor's office, the department of environment, the sentences the police apartment, the department of public works, and the puc for coming together for trying to craft what we think would be a strong alternative, but the
6:39 pm
pharmaceutical industry just has not really come together in a robust way, as we had hoped for. with that said, maybe they will think about it, but i'm not so sure that they will because based on their track record in other states where they have spent millions of dollars to defeat the state legislature to do the very thing that we are trying to do here today, we thought that our proposal is quite frankly extremely modest as it was and is, and would seem less threatening, but still, they are reacting with the same kind of ferocity as they have in state government to make sure that a simple take back drug disposal program where it is a bucket with a lid and it is regulated would be administered, and to try to block us from doing that i think is just unconscionable. your support would be appreciated. commissioner chiu: thank you. any additional discussion?
